  • Burlotto G.B. Dolcetto d'Alba 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This is a bit reticent on the nose with a dusty mineral character and gentle herbal suggestions floating above the taut blackberry fruit. In the mouth this has laser focus for Dolcetto, with the acidity corralling the fruit and driving the black, lightly spicy fruit into a long finish that shows a gentle herbal top note on the finale. 90pts Read More

  • Burlotto G.B. Barbera d'Alba 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Lacks a bit of freshness on the nose, with a bit of wood spice and raw wood tones with a really intense rose top note. Lush and sexy on the palate with a velvety feel to the dense but not heavy mid-palate that is full of rich, dark flavors. The fruit is a bit jammy, dark cherry tones, and framed with spicy wood tones. The wood contributes some t... Read More

  • Burlotto G.B. Barbera d'Alba Aves 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Darker and more mineral and balsamic than the Barbera dAlba with a little rosehip, accenting a core of black fruit. Bright on entry, and even a bit weighty with obvious richness to the plummy fruit. The mid-palate has a bit of a matte feel though it turns fresher on the backend and through the raspberry finish which has a lingering edge of swee... Read More

  • Fratelli Brovia Dolcetto D'alba Ciaböt Del Re 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Dirty and oxidized on the nose with lots of seedy aromas. Carob, fennel, celery seed aromas. texturally this is clean and precise in the mouth though the wine has no life. Its dark and medicinal and long on the palate with oversteeped, meaty and even bready flavors. At least theres some power. 74pts Read More

  • Cascina Delle Rose Dolcetto d'Alba a Elizabeth 2011

    Snoothrank:

    ~ Editor's Choice ~Assertively earthy, spicy, and violet driven on the nose this also shows a little tobacco smoke top note over aromas of freshly crushed berry and plum fruit. Elegant in the mouth and with great transparency, this strikes just the perfect weight and balance, with gorgeous purity of fruit, almost sweet with ripeness, and layer... Read More

  • Cordero di Montezemolo Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Assemblage of all their plots and Roero, also in this case try to produce a product that represents Barbera the variety Six to seven months of wood, Very ripe on the nose with strong black, dusty, roasted fruit over toasty wood spice. This is a little soft and creamy in the mouth and lacks a little vitality on the palate which does show plenty o... Read More
